New! Villa Ishq Sri Lanka. Book today. Further details coming soon.

ISHQ is informal, homely and bespoke. Family owned, the villa takes its name from the Persian word for love. Located along Galle’s ‘French Riviera’, ISHQ is a four-bedroomed luxury villa that first came to be in the 1990s, a part of the original fabric of the island’s first luxury villas designed by the renowned architect Bruce Fell-Smith. Today, the villa marries a love for clean design with oceanic hues and brings together all the comforts of a boutique hotel with the privacy and exclusivity of a private villa.

Located along Galle’s ‘French Riviera’ of Talpe, less than two hours from Colombo’s international airport, ISHQ is a four-bedroomed luxury villa that first came to be in the 1990s, a part of the original fabric of the island’s first luxury villas designed by the renowned architect Bruce Fell-Smith.

Set right across a turquoise Indian Ocean shore, palm fringed on both ends, the villa marries a love for airy spaces and soft and chic interiors with all the comforts of a boutique hotel and the privacy and exclusivity of a private villa.
ISHQ is all at once informal and homely but bespoke in services and the finer details in luxury holidaying – taking its name from the Persian word for love. And what’s not to love?

Expect high ceilings and airy spaces both in-room and in common areas, characteristic of a colonial Dutch heritage; large king-sized beds to fall into; low slung lazy chairs by the courtyard pool to sunbathe on; spaces for the children in the form of a games and movie room and spaces for adults; good food, wonderful company, reading, swimming, massage and wellness – all the makings of a wind-down and hassle-free, beach retreat.

The villa’s dedicated team encompasses an experienced personal chef, butlers and fitness trainer on location who excel at friendly, informal yet efficient hospitality.

Minutes away is a 15th century Portuguese and Dutch engineered Fortress, boutique artisan shops and restaurants, ancient temples, rural paddy fields, snorkeling and dive sites and spas to luxuriate in. Come sunset, the villa’s garden by the ocean’s edge transforms into a candle lit, palm fringed space for sundown drinks and dinner under a blanket of stars.

Rates include: Daily chef service for breakfast, lunch and dinner (grocery and beverage are at extra cost), twice daily housekeeping service with nightly turndown service, butler service, South Asian cooking classes, personalized service on the beach, children's activity program, all utilities (electricity, water, Internet).
